Laurus nobilis Sweet Bay Shrub

Item #40474


Beauty meets practicality in this hardy shrub

'Versatile' is its middle name—great for food seasoning, aroma, and visual interest

Consider making this Mediterranean native a permanent part of your herb garden, even if you live far north of its zone 8-11 hardiness range. It is fragrant and beautiful, and if planted in a container will keep itself just 4 to 5 feet high. Its dried leaves superbly season meats and vegetables, and its gentle beauty is as pleasing indoors during winter as it is outside from spring through fall.

When planted in garden soil where it is hardy, Sweet Bay Laurel can reach 40 to 50 feet tall over time, but it easily adapts its size to the available root space, which makes it a great container choice. Long-lived and very low maintenance, it is a must-have for cooks and gardeners alike. If you're in search of an attractive, fragrant, long-lived plant that is very easy to care for, look no further than Sweet Bay Laurel.
